Why Seychelles – a Seychelles IBC – an International Business Company, is the most versatile and flexible type of company foundation in the Seychelles. Similar to other offshore destinations, Seychelles IBC is known and popular for its international design and operational capability. While many other overseas countries disclose directories of directors, shareholders and stakeholders, the Seychelles allow absolute anonymity through a non-public register and a constitutionally clear privacy declaration. In addition, the freedom of movement of Seychelles companies with regard to exemption from any accounting obligations and also a non-requirement of annual audits goes far beyond the usual scope of offshore companies. Since the introduction of the Seychelles International Business Companies Act in 1994, over 200,000 Seychelles companies have been established. The number of new registrations per month is more than 1000 and should answer “why Seychelles”.

    • Based on the internationally agreed tax standard, the OECD has formulated “white”, “grey” and “black” lists:
    • White List – Jurisdictions that have implemented the internationally agreed tax standard – i.e. are not regarded by the OECD as a tax haven.
    • Grey list – Jurisdictions that are committed to the internationally agreed tax standard but have not yet substantially implemented it – i.e. can meet some of the above tax haven criteria.
    • Black list – jurisdictions that are not bound by the internationally agreed tax standard – i.e. the jurisdiction has not taken any steps to cooperate with the OECD in implementing the standard.
